Had unprotected sex, taken steroid injection for inflammation. HIV negative. Stiff neck, hurts when turning. Help?

Greetings. On the earlier of June, I had a protective sex with a prostitute but I also received unprotective oral sex from her. On the 9th week, I was tested HIV negative, however my neutrophil was 79 and lymphocyte was 14, WBC was 7.7 (normal range is 4 to 11). Doctor said that my white cells are unremarkable. After 4 months later, I went for a blood test again to test my blood count, neutrophil was up to 80 and lymphocyte was down to 11. Previously on July, I have skin rash (urticaria), so doctor gave me a steroid injection to curb the inflammation. On earlier August, I had a stiff neck after I woke up, whenever I turn my head to right or left, it still hurt till today. Should I be worry about HIV infection? Thanks

Hi, the symptoms utricaria, and stiff neck has nothing to do with the H.I.V. if you want to exclude the H.I.V. consult you doctor and have the confirmatory tests done .
For stiff neck, consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Thank you.
